Vicmarc Oval Turning Device
Oval turning is an old art of turning, it has been practiced since the middle ages. Professor Johannes Volmer was able to create a system for oval turning using tooth belts for smooth operation. Vicmarc has re-engineered this device and simplified the operation and setup.
From the website of Professor Johannes Volmer: “Ovalturning is an old challenging woodturning art. It was applied until the middle of the 20th century in frame manufactories. There were many such factories in European countries but nothing remained. In the USA the Old Schwamb Mill - a frame factory founded in 1864 by German immigrants - has been well preserved. It is a working museum with the19th century machines in action. Ovalturning is of increasing interest for designers, artisans and restorers and for fans of woodturning looking for new challenging techniques. The ellipse is a curve of traditional charm. Classical applications are elliptical picture frames and mirror frames but also plates, bowls, boxes and keyhole plates (escutcheons).”
